BerlinBalticNordic.net is the initiative of media:net berlinbrandenburg for networking and exchange between Berlin's games and interactive media industry and companies, universities and institutions in the Nordic and Baltic countries. The project is currently on hold and will resume with new topics and activities in summer 2020. Stay tuned!
The aim of BerlinBalticNordic.net is to connect the Berlin Games and Interactive Media industries with the Baltic Sea and Nordic countries. Focusing on the initiation of business relations, participants benefit from a wide network of companies, institutions and talent incubators.
Based on the success of Berlin meets Poland, media:net berlinbrandenburg started its initiative BerlinBalticNordic.net in January 2016. We were building up on the previous project by extending the existing network to the Nordic and Baltic Sea countries, including digital entertainment areas such as animation and VFX.
The focus is on the initiation of business relations which are supposed to lead to sustainable cooperation. We intend to give participating companies the chance to directly get in touch with the markets of the countries as well as with the companies there, including organizers of the relevant business conferences and trade fairs, multipliers, publishers, developers, associations, investors and incubators. We also connect our participants to universities and cultural institutions.
Fields of action:
Market Research and Development
Industry Event Participation
Knowledge Exchange and Transfer
The games industry is booming – not only in Berlin. As a location, however, the capital is an important hub for the development of the international network. Here, the games industry profits from creative game developers, publishers and a constantly growing indie scene.
A new initiative will expand the activities of BerlinBalticNordic.net in summer 2020. It is broadening the view and will network the games industry throughout Europe.
This project is financed by the EUROPEAN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUNDS and co-financed by the State of Berlin, Senate Department of Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises. The project is currently on hold and will resume with new topics and activities in summer 2020. Stay tuned!
